deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 29, 2020

For years, the literature on boredom has been crowded with complaints about the scarcity of research on the subject, even though there is a large amount of papers and books on this phenomenon, since philosophers, theologians, sociologists, and writers have reflected on boredom for centuries. The area of cross-disciplinary Boredom Studies has been successfully launched and continued to steadily grow over the last two decades. Whatever domain of reality boredom researchers scrutinize, boredom emerges as a significant part of our daily lives.
